In some situations, you may want to make the input for a specific field mandatory. Mandatory fields can help you when a particular field is critical for generating a report or is used for issue lifecycle management.
To make a field mandatory, you need to use a workflow. The Due Date default workflow contains a module named Require due dates for submitted issues. This module contains an on-change rule that sets the Due Date field as a mandatory field. You can modify this workflow to make another field mandatory, or copy the code and create a separate workflow that you can use independently.
